Roku has premiered the full-length trailer for its live-action series adaptation of Tony DiTerlizzi and Holly Black’s children’s fantasy books “The Spiderwick Chronicles”.

Paramount Television Studios and 20th Television originally shot and completed the eight-episode series for the Disney+ service. However, Disney+ opted not to move forward as a means of cost-cutting, and concerns over the show’s dark tone. Roku jumped in and took the property for the U.S. market.

The story follows the Grace Family as they move into a dilapidated ancestral home and begin to unravel a dark mystery about their great-great Uncle who discovered a foreboding faerie world existing parallel to their own.

The new series is a modern coming-of-age story combined with fantasy adventure. Jack Dylan Grazer, Lyon Daniels, Noah Cottrell, Joy Bryant, Mychala Lee and Christian Slater star.

Aron Eli Coleite created the series and both writes and produces. Kat Coiro, Jeremy Bell, and Grace Gilroy executive produce. Nickelodeon and Paramount previously adapted the property into a 2008 film.

The new “The Spiderwick Chronicles” series is set to premiere on the service on April 19th.
